Book Description

This is the life story of Mírzá Siyávash-i-Sefídvash. Born 1874 in Yazd, Iran into an orthodox Zoroastrian family he was a devoted Zoroastrian. In 1896, after becoming acquainted with a tablet from Bahá’u’lláh addressed to the Zoroastrian scholar Ustád Javanmard-i-Shirmard, he became a Bahá’í. He rose up to teach the cause and experienced immense opposition from the Zoroastrian and Muslim clergy who issued his death edict. In 1912, he attained the presence of ‘Abdu’lBahá and was blessed with the gift of the Master’s cane. He served on the world’s first & second elected Local Spiritual Assemblies and was instrumental in establishing the Parsian Brother Company. Following his death in 1958 he became the first Bahá’i to be buried in the Bahá’i cemetery of Gorgán.
